AutoGyro Cavalon Gyrocopter
by Mark R
It has been a while since we reported on a gyrocopter with The Amazing Flying Dutch Car. This particular gyrocopter is AutoGyro’s Cavalon, and it is planned to be unveiled at Aero Friedrichshafen, which I can only assume is some airshow of some type.
The Cavalon is a two-seater chopper that my Source states has “plenty of space for a passenger and a pilot, with plenty of room to move around if needed”. I strongly doubt that by the looks of it, as it looks like my mini-van has more room.
However, my mini-van can’t fly. This Cavalon looks like it can go on land as well as the air, but I only say that because of the three wheels on it.
I suppose that this is probably as close as we are going to get to flying cars. I remember that the main characters of Brave New World flew around in helicopters, and I thought that was an interesting theory about the future, back in the 1930s.
The AutoGyro Cavalon is going to be pretty rare as only 10 will be made. It is going to have a price tag about $94,276. Yes, that is pretty expensive, and I don’t think I can afford it any more than I could build one of my own like that guy in China.
